Abstract

Three patients with Sjögren's syndrome complicated by malignant lymphoma are presented. During the benign stage, two showed non-specific hyperplastic lymph node patterns on lymphography. When the disease had become malignant, all cases revealed generalized involvement of the retroperitoneal lymph nodes. The lymphographic pattern was that of a malignant lymphoma: enlarged nodes, with a foamy, linear or reticular appearance but mostly preserved marginal sinuses. On lymphographic follow-up, the node alterations were consistent with the histological findings and the clinical status, including the therapeutic response.
